Bear Cage

Don't mind the title. Just the song I was listening to at the time.

Today's been a fairly good one eating wise... not my best but I'm content.
I had a job interview this morning for this fairly large shoe company in Australia. My mum allowed me to go to the interview at 10, it finished at 11 and then get to school at 12.
It was a group interview with 13 other people.
I am really eager to get the job but let's see if I am 'special' enough to get a call back for a solo interview.
I tried to stand out and be outgoing but there was one girl who was completely OTT there.
While talking she would get up on a chair and shout out whatever she had to say.
Maybe they'll admire her guts, I don't know.
I just hope they like the way I tried to sell a shoe and admire the story I told them about my dad taking me motorbike riding in England on ice and snow even though I don't have a motorbike licence.
Oh, I didn't just randomly tell them that, they asked for the craziest/wildest thing that we had done and that was the first I could think of.

Anyway, back to my eating. I started off my breakfast by chugging a large glass and a half of water so that my stomach was already full before I ate. I have quite a small stomach, especially when it comes to water retention so only managed a couple of spoonfuls of natural yoghurt and all my vitamins before I was full.
I managed to not be hungry at all during the day thanks to all the water in the morning except my friend brought in brownies to school that her younger brother had made for me.
He's a great baker even though he's only 12 and I couldn't resist. They were only small and there were only two of them. They were so small that they add up to the size of one average brownie.
I felt extremely guilty eating them but I would have felt more guilty for not eating them, she did save them for me after all.
I did a lot of walking today though so I felt like that cancelled out the brownies.
It's 5pm now and I ate four hours ago, yet I'm still not hungry.
It's great.
I'm going to start my day with large glasses of water every day.
Oh! Also! I have added a recipe page at the top. It's a work in progress but please let me know what you think :)

I have also decided to jump on the 60 day challenge bandwagon, starting today! (the link is here)

Week One!
Weekly challenge: Pick one unhealthy food or habit you have (eg. Artificial sweetener, chocolate, eating after 8pm, skipping breakfast) and aim to go 7 days without eating/doing it.

The unhealthy habit I have is eating a spoonful of Nutella in the afternoons occasionally. I want to stop that. Another habit that I developed not that long ago is snacking after dinner. That is an absolute no go.

Day one: How tall are you, what do you currently weigh, and what do you hope to weigh after the 60 days? (Be realistic). 

I am 170cms tall (5.6 feet) and I weigh 57.5 kilos (126.5 lbs). Yes, that's embarrassing, especially considering I was once 46 kilos :( but I'm also happy with it at the same time considering two weeks ago I weighed 59 kilos.
After the 60 days I hope to weigh 50 kilos but I'll be happy even with 55. 50 kilos is my main goal for the moment though.

Love you all to bits and thank you all so much for your wondrous comments! You're all actually helping a truck load! Hopefully I'll start posting when I'm not tired and I will try and respond to your comments in my posts as well.


  1. i hope you get the job :) the ott girl, just sounds pretty annoying to be honest ;)
    and well done on your intake; it's really low...dont worry too much about the brownies, i'm sure many of us would have given in to them ;) xo.

  2. I hope you get the job! And great job with the intake. And I love the recipe page. I'm thinking about making the spicy falafels later since I have the stuff to make those already.

  3. I hate girls who say they're fat but are fucking thin. Like you. I know you're ill and everything, but it chokes my self-steem. until I realize at least I don't have an eating disorder.
